Author and Garden Educator
Rutabaga Education is the passion project of Kaitlin Mitchell, a former elementary school educator with a master's degree in Cross-Cultural Education who San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles magazine describes as "an edible gardening evangelist."
In development since 2015, Rutabaga Education has worked with schools, teachers, parents, families, homeschools, local nurseries, occupational therapists, and agriculture and garden clubs. We aim to provide structure, teaching standards, and exciting tools for all ages and abilities to be curious and successful in gardening, science, nature, and nutrition to develop lifelong healthy habits personally, in their community, and on the planet.
If you'd like to connect with Rutabaga to see if our resources can help grow your garden program, don't hesitate to contact us.
